Hi, 

if you like using Samsung Today but  you're fed up this fugly samsung dark-blue-blured-pixelated background I've prepared a pure black one for you.

You want it? :> ok so her's what you have to do, you need two things.

a).A .dll file with black background. Download:

http://www.box.net/shared/c8tzpgbhke

b).Total Commander for smartphones (or any other tool for copying files on your device, active sync won't let you for that):


TC website link:

http://www.ghisler.com/smartphone.htm

How to switch background:

1. Copy downloaded and unpacked file: "TodayContainerRC.dll"  onto your device
2. Switch into  "Life" mode.
3. Using Total Commander (or any other) copy/move file directly to "Windows" folder on your device.
4. Switch back into "Work" mode.
5. Choose "Yes" when Windows asks you whether to use TodayContainerRC.dll (the one we switched).
6. Voila!

Result*: 

*should not vary from the one below :>

Have Fun!

Looks very good. It was such a nuisance to be reminded of banding everytime you look at the phone!

Thank you so much for the tip.

PS: Works like a charm. Thanks a lot ;)

If you use PE Explorer and change the images 124 and 128 you can add custom images.

on which device? b7610 or i8000?





b7610 - via special button or using internal app

i8000  - you have to import this app as well as the whole samsung today plugin

Thanks. It rocks.
I kindly ask you to tell me how can I edit the shortcuts?
Also, Is there any setting to do in order to have the screen fixed (not to allow dragging) when I have few items which fit on one screen.
Now, If I have only one item on screen, I still can drag the screen.
Thank you again.

right now the irony of it all.. it's better to get the latest Samsung Today from..i8000, yes i8000 in the newest firmware samsung release contains tweaked version with working rss reader.

if I have some time I'll try to extract it.
G.. no ROMs for PRO.. really strange..

the shortuct edit eiher by long pressing or look for that in registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Samsung/Today/Shortcut

I noticed that the sensitive area size for the buttons/icons it seems to be smaller than the button/icon size.
Or, the sensitivity is too low because it seems hardly to select them.
This sensitivity can be increased or maybe changed to cover all button/icon area?

Also, when select any button/icon, there is not highlight. Can you, please add it?
Thank you.

Could you elaborate on this, I tried it, but now Samsung Today won't start. The png I created has the same properties (24 bit, etc. etc.)

Thanks!

see the difference?

ther's no minitdyres96.dll file in Today given in b7610 and i8000

but a set of :

TodayContainer.dll.0409.mui

TodayContainer.dll
TodayContainerRC.dll - usu. background gfx

DefaultPlugIns.dll
DefaultPlugInsRC.dll

The way how to do it I put here:

http://www.modaco.co...change-content/

and I wrote that jus swapping files won't work :)

XeOS you're not a cerefull reader..

OK, I see now tha't it's a lot more work after reading through your post. And I'm also on Win7 x64.
Thanks for the reply, I just clicked through from the i8000 forum and just read through this one. You're right, I've should've searched first for other threads.
I'll give it another go this weekend.

You said you're on Win7 x64. so don't be suprised if you aren't able do to that the way I described, it works on XP but I had some reports ther's no go on 7 :/

But this only relates to signing the file. Yet I guess you may try the method mentioned in the link by w64bit just the part of unsigning and signing. Another idea which I didn't thest but is a possibility is to remove certs form this files at all. So you don't need to worry bout them. Anaywas, wish you lack on modding. [; Let us know of the results.
